The Legatum Institute is a London-based think-tank with a global vision: to see all people lifted out of poverty. Our mission is to create the pathways from poverty to prosperity, by fostering Open Economies, Inclusive Societies and Empowered People. 

We do this in three ways:

Our Centre for Metrics which create indexes and datasets to measure and explain how poverty and prosperity are changing.

Our Research Programmes which analyse the many complex drivers of poverty and prosperity at the local, national and global level.

Our Practical Programmes which identify the actions required to enable transformational change.
